Only I Am A Reader novel is a popular light novel covering Adventure, Fantasy, and Action genres. Written by the Author LightningAsura. 373 chapters have been translated and translations of other chapters are in progress.


Leo Lock, a reading addict with the ability to truly 'read' books, never really fit in his boring 'normal' world. However, everything changed when an unknown voice found its way to his head!

Fainting only to find himself in the body of a character from a fantasy novel he once read upon waking up, Leo barely processed his new reality before he was thrown into another whirlpool.

[Role: Reader]
[Target: Reach the Epilogue.]

The only lead he had about his 'transmigration' didn’t speak much! Even the character he took over already had a foot in the coffin! How was he supposed to survive that long? Why did he have to become the protagonist’s brother?!

Moreover, what was this Personal Book supposed to be? Reading Attributes? Points?

Follow Leo as he experiences the true life of a reader in a fantasy book, facing expected challenges, and encountering all kinds of 'new'…

Would he manage to go back and find out the reason behind his 'transmigration'? Was that even his purpose? Or was this nothing but the start of a much bigger change beyond the scope of his understanding…?


First Volume: The Sword Master’s Second Life
Second Volume: Murim Supremacy

Note: Yes, Leo starts out with a sword, but that isn’t the limit to his choice of weapons!

    It's finally back on a schedule and updating more frequently

      • Imsudo 1

        Not that I know of so far

      I wished... the novel was so good but 1ch/week is so slow, you already forgot what happened every time a new chapter comes out

      • OmniPirate 2

        You should train your memory, get to the point where you can be reading hundreds and remember what's happened. (I'm almost up to 500 if you include webcomics)

        That's impressive. I wanna think about mine. Hmmmm... I've read only around 150 webnovels and like 60 webcomics (or whatever it's referred to) most of them not even completely. Remember only about 100 of them in all. Again not fully. But if we're counting physical novels I have no idea how many. Have easily fully read over 500 books (from 3rd grade levels to beyond). Still remember quite a number of them. I literally only started reading online because I couldn't go to the library to get books. I read too much... I need a new hobby.

    This one is much more interesting than some novels I've read. Just that its a bit annoying he gets less time jn his real life journey, i kinda want to see him roam around in his own birth place, just a hundred chapters worth. It's rather medium-sized than going through some other novel(he's going through) that lasts much longer.

    The current arc is kinda boring, I've gotten worn out on this particular type of (mini) story. Hoping the next arc will have a genre change away from the Murim cultivation become god troupe)
